Creative Inspirations Challenge 4

Dear all,

I hope you've all settled back to normal after the Easter break. I am now 'without visitors' and trying to get back into my routine!!!

This card is for the Creative Inspirations challenge no 4. The challenge was to use two stamped images on your work. I started out with the two main images - the owl and the toadstool stamps -then added a few more small ones - I hope this is okay for the challenge!!!

I fiddled around with loads of backing papers (as you do!) and nothing looked right with the two big images - pattern overkill - so I decided to leave off the patterned papers and add some small stamped images from the same set as the large ones - Woodware Woodland Elements clear stamp set.

This also meant I could tie this challenge in to Clare Curd's current weekly challenge on the DoCrafts website to make a card without using patterned papers - bonus!!

The images are all stamped in black ink, embossed with clear embossing poweder, watercoloured with whispers brushmarkers and cut out. The sentiment is stamped from the CCSR sentiments stamp set.

All edges inked with ColorBox Fluid Chalk in Chestnut Roan. Cardstock from stash.

Thanks for looking. I'm off to make the girls some tea then I'll be back to have a look at other people's blogs - I've missed seeing all the lovely cards you make!!!
